Nutribullet vs Ninja



Recommended Posts

I have all sorts of gadgets (some of which are pretty costly), but I'll be honest. The only one I used in my post-op period was my stick blender.

I used the stick blender to blend fruit into my Protein Shakes. That's it, really. When I was on pureed, I stuck with stuff that was naturally pureed like refried Beans, cottage cheese, soft scrambled eggs, etc.

I wouldn't invest a whole lot into gadgets unless you plan on using them for life or as a normal part of your daily diet.

I think they're both the same really mid range blenders. You can pay $20 or you can pay $2000 it really depends on your budget!

But I can't believe people buying pre-made Protein Drinks at like $3-$5 a drink when you can buy 2lbs of powder from $30+ and make your own shakes!

I am a working mom and i barely drink a shake a day-- so between taking care of my family, cooking meals, doing normal stuff at home, running my kid around, and working a busy full time professional job. I have no problem spending $20-25 bucks for a case of 18 pre made shakes :)

If you choose not to do that- great for you but sometimes convenience is worth a few bucks to people.

I have a Vitamix. They're expensive, sure. But they are great for use as a food processor too. I use it to chop onion and even make cauliflower rice. Be sure to look at it as an investment.

Thanks for the input! I appreciate it.

I spent $14.99 at BigLots for a Hamilton Beach one--looks kinda like a NutriBullet. Get's the job done on my green smoothies and that's about all I use it for. I have other tools for other things. I skipped the mush/puree stage and went straight to softs per my doc.

So I had a nutri bullet before surgery and killed it pretty easily with making smoothies. The ice burned the motor out.

I picked up a ninja blender on Black Friday two years ago and it worked like a champ for me post-op. I still use it for the occasional Protein Shake when I’ve got a sweets craving.

I don’t think I’d buy a super pricey blender just for the purées stage. It’s such a short period of time!

Thank you! I actually ordered the ninja yesterday on Amazon since I still had about $30 left on a gift card. With a 3 y/o and a 13 y/o, I figure I can make plenty of smoothies and shakes. 😊

      @DaisyChainOz, @Arabesque ... am totally thinking of both of you this very moment as I watch the final set of the Millman-Federer match at the AO... I am riveted and literally screaming at the TV...

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.
